SJ Suryah likely to be cast in Ram Charan-Shankar movie

0

Tamil actor-director S.J. Suryah is likely to play an important role in Ram Charan’s much-hyped upcoming movie which is being directed by Shankar Shanmugam.

Reports suggest that S.J. Suryah is being considered to play the main antagonist opposite ‘RRR’ actor Ram Charan in his upcoming venture. Tentatively titled ‘RC15’, the movie is one of the most anticipated projects, which is being made with a huge budget.

S.J. Suryah, who directed blockbuster hit ‘Kushi’ in Telugu, failed to impress the audience with his movie ‘Nani’, which had Mahesh Babu and Ameesha Patel in the lead roles.

Despite his mind-blowing performance in Mahesh Babu’s psycho thriller ‘Spyder’, S.J. Suryah did not get a reasonable response among the Telugu audience.

But, Suryah’s recent appearance in Tamil movie ‘Maanadu’ is being praised, and the makers of ‘RC15’ are hopeful to get the director-cum-actor on board for a strongly-written role.

‘RC15’ also features Srikanth, Sunil, Anjali, Jayaram, and others in key roles. Thaman is the film’s music director.

Kiara Advani, who has appeared alongside Ram Charan in ‘Vinaya Vidheya Rama’ earlier, is the female lead in ‘RC15’. The big-budget movie is produced by Dil Raju.

As Balakrishna played a few videos of multiple directors, they had revealed some memorable incidents with Mahesh Babu. Meher Ramesh, who has worked with Mahesh for a couple of commercials as well, reminded him of an incident, which happened in Chennai.

“We were having breakfast in a star hotel. I was with my family, as Meher Ramesh and his family were there too. Two beautiful girls, who came to me, had requested my autograph. I refused to do so, saying that it was my personal, family time”, Mahesh Babu explained.

“After some time, Meher Ramesh told me that the two girls were director Shankar’s daughters. I was shocked, as I walked up to him on the next floor, I apologised for not giving them my autograph when his daughters had requested me,” the ‘Bharat Ane Nenu’ actor said.

“Shankar, who took it in the most positive way, said that it was totally fine, as his daughter had come to know how stars live. I was so stunned at his simplicity and humbleness”, Mahesh said.

Mahesh Babu awaits the theatrical release of ‘Sarkaru Vaari Paata’ on May 12.

Ace director Shankar is the latest to join the list of those showering praises on director Gnanavel’s critically acclaimed film ‘Jai Bhim’, featuring actors Suriya, Lijo Mol Jose and Manikandan in the lead.

Manikandan, Lijomol and all other cast and crew excelled. It has been proven again, that a powerful film can bring an enormous change,” the director said.

The critically acclaimed courtroom drama is inspired by true events that happened in Tamil Nadu in the 1990s and tells the moving story of an upright lawyer coming to the aid of poor people from the Irular community who have no means to stand up to the brutality of an inhuman police force that seeks to exploit their helplessness.
